Leah Sharibu, Christian Dapchi girl, finally free – IGP

The Dapchi Christian female student, Leah Sharibu, who was not released along with her classmates is on her way back home, as you read this!

Inspector General of Police Ibrahim Idris on Saturday in Maiduguri said Federal Government of Nigeria has reached a breakthrough in securing Leah Sharibu‘s release and she is on her way back home.

The Inspector General of Police Idris Ibrahim confirmed this in an interview with journalists at the Military Command and Control Center in Maiduguri where he visited the Theatre Commander Operation Lafiya Dole.

He said he had been scheduled to travel to Dapchi but shelved the trip so as not to jeopardize her release.

Islamist terror group Boko Haram had reportedly held back on freeing Leah Sharibu on account of her not renouncing her Christian faith.

Leah Sharibu was the only Christian girl among the Dapchi schoolgirls kidnapped by Boko Haram last month. She could have been freed along with her schoolmates but she refused to renounce her faith.

Leah Sharibu refused to accept Islam, despite pleas from her classmates to pretend to do so.

The now freed girl is on her way to Dapchi, Yobe State, according to the Police IG on Saturday evening.
